Abstract

A survey research study was conducted with a
sample of 100 secondary students from a local secondary
school about the motives of cheating. The primary focus of
this study was the interplay among variables of self-efficacy,
peer influence and cheating. The results showed that
students with low self-efficacy were more likely to cheat
than those who perceived themselves as efficacious. It was
further found that peers played a significant role in discouraging
cheating by expressing disapproval and
informing teachers of dishonest behaviour.
